Today marks the 1 year passing of a beautiful woman, a trusted friend and the best Mother-in-law that I ever had, M. Lonnie Wu.
Lately, I’ve been thinking about how sad I was going to be today. Shame on me for not following Lonnie’s advice; “Don’t waste time worrying about tomorrow, Stuie, it won’t help.” So, now that today is here, I find myself still being encouraged by her, still being accountable to her. Still loving her influence on me and how it makes my life better. I’m not sad about that!
I do miss our conversations. Well, the ones where she gets to respond, as I still talk to her every morning with coffee to start my day. Her portrait hangs in my kitchen, and it’s one of the most beautiful ones I have. I talk to her smiling face and feel good. Not sad. She’s still with me, in life and in spirit. I’m a better person with her in my life, still.
Love & Peace, Lonnie. Love & Peace!
